The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday


Welcome to The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday, where we endeavor to remember the very best thing we stuffed down our gullets over the past 24 hours. Why? Because the only thing better than enjoying a meal is wallowing in the memory of one savored in the recent past.

Today’s fond reminiscences …

Rebecca Marx: Kale salad at Northern Spy Food Co. (511 East 12th Street, 212-228-5100).

Chantal Martineau: Pasta with brown butter and sage, made at home.

Robert Sietsema: Akamaru Chashu ramen at Ippudo (65 Fourth Avenue, 212-388-0088) after a one-hour wait.

Lauren Shockey: Chicken soup from Whole Foods, at home.
